The definition of a two-dimensional DCT for an input image A and a transformed image B is the following: ⎧M −1 N −1 ⎛ π (2m + 1) p ⎞ ⎛ π (2n + 1)q ⎞⎫ B pq = α pα q ⎨ ∑∑ Amn cos⎜ ⎟ cos⎜ ⎟⎬ 2M 2N ⎝ ⎠ ⎝ ⎠⎭ ⎩m =0 n =0 Where: 0 ≤ p ≤ M − 1 and 0 ≤ q ≤ N − 1 ⎧ 1 ⎪ M , ⎪ αp = ⎨ ⎪ 2 , ⎩⎪ M ⎧ ⎪ ⎪ αq = ⎨ ⎪ 1 ≤ p ≤ M −1 ⎩⎪ p=0 1 N , q=0 2 1 ≤ q ≤ N −1 , N M and N are respectively the row and column size of A. The application of the DCT to an image (real data), produces a real result. The DCT is used in many data compression applications in preference to the DFT (Discrete Fourier Transform) because of its property that is frequently referred to as “energy compactation”.
On the other hand in image coding the goal is to reduce the amount of bits without appreciably sacrificing the quality of the reconstructed image, and in image recognition the number of bits is not so important. 36 M. Faundez-Zanuy and J. Fabregas The goal is to reduce the dimensionality of the vectors in order to simplify the complexity of the classifier and to improve recognition accuracy. 3 Experimental Results This section evaluates the results achieved using the WHT and DCT feature extraction methods using a Nearest Neighbor classifier .
